This stem is what makes your slicing and grating discs work. It attaches to each disc via a sliding mechanism, and bridges the gap between your disc and the processor motor. Cuisinart now only manufactures slicing and grating discs with detachable stems, so if you are looking for a replacement for an older disc with an attached stem, know that you are going to need to purchase a flat disc and this detachable stem separately.
Note: This is compatible with the DLC-10 and the DLC-2007N processors.
I searched for the correct stem part for my cuisinart food processor for a while. My machine is probably 20 years old. The part number on the existing but broken part and my machine did not correspond to available stem parts. I could not rely on the part compatibility claims of another vendor. After 2 false starts I found the correct piece with Kitchen Works. The part fits and my machine is once again as good as new. Nice to know one can replace parts and not toss workhorse appliances!
My cuisinart is over 30 years old and I’ve had to replace the stem and the work bowl, primarily due to negligence on my part. It’s good to know that Kitchen Works has what I need!
I was about to throw my food processor out when I broke an attachment.
Because It was very old but well made, I managed to find a replacement from this company. It arrived and it fits and I am so grateful.
